Overview

Intel’s mission is a poorly constructed statement, which only scored 1.9 points. 0.6 points were received because of a customer-oriented statement. Customer-oriented missions reveal that the company is focused on customers and their needs, unlike product-oriented missions that focus on what products or services to sell. The statement includes only 4 components and lacks customers (it mentions customers but doesn’t answer to the question of who they are), products and services, markets, philosophy and concern for public image (doesn’t reveal that Intel is socially and environmentally responsible company). The mission doesn’t mention any of the 4 values used in our evaluation so just by looking at company’s mission it’s not clear what guides Intel’s decisions or actions.

Intel’s mission is poorly constructed and can be hardly used to communicate company’s core purpose to its stakeholders. The company should include more mission components and address more stakeholders: such as partners, communities and suppliers or distributors.
